A Warm Welcome

A generous Entry Hall is given a second purpose: a place to relax and take stock.

  • A central seating group anchors the hall and replaces the traditional center table.
  • Upon entry, an intimate space for two is revealed. Perfect for a tête à tête or a glass of wine by the fire.

Room For Dinner

Immediately adjacent to the Entry Hall, guests are ushered into this cozy dining area to share a meal.

  • Neutral fabrics and soft patterns in shades of blue and cream allow company and conversation to be the focus.
  • An alcove is brought to life with a custom settee while the mirror positioned directly above opens up the space with the reflection of candlelight.
  • Paintings above each door provide punctuation.

A Cozy Library

This gentleman’s retreat from the hustle and bustle of the day carefully walks the line between traditional and transitional.

  • Custom wood paneling creates warmth and intimacy.
  • Rich neutrals ground the space while green and royal blue accents add interest in unexpected places.
  • Small details like a brass end table or a bold and masculine pendant fixture introduce the eye to playful design moments.
  • For those in the know…a humidor is tucked into the bookcase on the far right.

A Larger Than Life Living Room

A place for family and friends to gather, this Living Room invites the eye with warm neutrals.

  • A dazzling, French, late 18th Century Louis XIV Armoire from The Golden Triangle holds court as the room’s centerpiece.
  • Large mirrors on wither side of the armoire echo the rhythm of the French doors. 
  • A custom desk serves double-duty as a console and a visual barrier between the seating group and breakfast room. 

A Perfectly Pretty Powder Room

Powder Rooms are forever our favorite and this is no exception. It’s a special space that’s a marriage of playful and practical.

  • A sophisticated palate of cobalt, black, and gold is enhanced by hand-painted wallpaper.
  • Pendant lighting: handmade in London.
  • Framed Intaglio pendants add interest and historicism.
